Atlanta Braves

Atlanta Braves have shown their power in the postseason games, especially against the Dodgers. They managed to defeat the Dodgers in their opening two games and they still have the upper hand. The Braves need to win just one more game on the season to get past the Dodgers. Last night, Atlanta squandered a 2-0 lead and they were forced to give up seven runs to the Dodgers. The Braves were able to score just one more in return. Max Fried will be delivered to the mound as their starter in this game. Fried held an impressive 7-0 record in the regular season with an impressive ERA of 2.25.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers are unpredictable at times since they lose when they are not expected too. However, Los Angeles held the best record in the regular season and they are not an easy team to defeat.
